The printed page cannot ex
press adequately our gratitude
to the Oiiicers and Men of
our parent regiment, the 34th
Infantry. They have led our
footsteps along new paths and
have themselves learned many
things in their eiorts to guide
us aright. Our first camp at
Fort Eustis, Virginia, was
held three years ago and was
a glorious success. The ex-
perience gained in 1926 made
the camp of the following
year even better than its
predecessor. In 1927, the
CMTC at Fort Eustis repre-
sents a major effort to give
training to Citizen Soldiers in
the Third Corps Area. Mem-
ories of interesting experi-
ences will be recalled by
hundreds of young Americans
as these pages'are turned-.
each feature introducing a
thought which brings mirth
to the jocular individual and
to the pensive candidate a
sense of sadness for things
that are gone. But above all
this, is the fact that "O-D"
brings back to us the forward-
looking spirit of our foster
mother. May we always emu-
late the example of the 34th
Infantry so that we can exult-
ingly join in her battle cry-

OF THE CMTC
In 1920 the Military Training Camps Association
appealed to the War' Department for the establish-
ment of camps for the voluntary training of young
men, as authorized in the National Defense Act of
that year. lt was especially fitting that the appeal
should be made by this group, since it was composed
of men who had themselves enrolled in pre-war camps
in the four years from IQI3 to 1916. The Secretary
of War, the late Hon. John W. Weeks, approved the
request and an appropriate item was included in the
budget for the next fiscal year. When the proposal
was presented to Congress by the Military Affairs
Committees it was heartily supported by the Hon.
james W. Wadsworth, Chairman of the Senate Com-
mittee, and by the, late Hon. Julius Kahn, Chairman
of the House Committee, both of whom remained
ardent friends of the camps during succeeding years.
The flrst appropriation was sufhcient for the
training of 10,000 young men at ten dilferent centers
throughout the country. The minimum age of admis-
sion was fixed at sixteen years and plans were made for

series of three courses-the Red

mum age was placed at seventeen and a preliminary course, the Basic, was added. Con-
gress made the graduates of the last, the Blue Course, eligible for examination leading
to a commission in the Organized Reserves.
For several years General John Pershing, the Chief of StaH, gave much thought
and stimulus to the development of the camps in which he was a strong believer. The
same attitude has characterized the oflicial work of his successors, Major General John L.

Indeed, no other Governmental activity

approval as the Citizens' Camps. The Amer-

last year to inspect the training at Plattsburg

the discipline. It stimulates their patriotic spirit and teaches them the principles of citizen-
ship. Our investigation disclosed the fact that the boys who are taking advantage of this
course are enthusiastic in their praise of the benefit they derive from this training. It is
remarkable what benefits accrue to a boy after spending one month in camp. " The Chair-
man ofthe United States Steel Corporation believes that "our young men should be trained
in such regular and intelligent courses of study and practice as are afforded by the Citizen's
Military Training Camps". These words express the feeling of employers throughout
the country, who have given them substantialbacking by the allowance of two weeks'
extra vacation with pay to such of their young men as are reckoned best qualified for this
training. Corporations have largely profited by this action thru the better morale of
thousands of their young employees who are striving by faithful and intelligent service

In religious denominations there has been from time to time some dissentient voice or

' against the voluntary training of the
camps. The Roman Catholic Church
has declared, in the words of an
eminent prelate, that "a valuable and
permanent contribution is made by
the citizen graduates of these camps
to our beloved country, in the way of
more virile patriotism and a keener
interest in the need, in peace as well
as in war, of a wise policy of national
defense and sccurityn. The Jewish
Welfare Board has registered its con-
viction that "the purpose of the
Citizens' Camps is an epitome of all
that is best in our American ideals:
equality, citizenship, patriotism and
clean out-door lifeu. The Episcopal
Bishop of New York, speaking for
another great denomination, has writ-
ten of camp training that "it will
benefit young men both physically and
mentally, it will deepen in them the spirit of democratic fellowship and of service to their
country, and will prepare them to perform more fully and effectively their duties as men
and as citizens". The General Secretary of the Federal Council of Churches of Christ
in America visited certain training centers last year and reported: "I am quite convinced
that the camps have a wholesome influence on the boys who attend them, that their effect
in inculcating discipline is good, and that any 'militarizing' influence on the boys is prac-
tically negligible". '
The judgment of educators on the value of the CMTC is strikingly manifest in the
offer of scholarships for competition and award at many camps. Fifty leading colleges
and universities have made available these prizes, which carry free tuition and are often
valid to the winners through the succeeding years of the academic course. These insti-
tutions are both public and private,
many of them under denominational
control, Catholic or Protestant, some
were established in colonial days,
others within recent decadesg they are l
found in every section of the country
from the Atlantic to the Pacific and
from the Canadian border to the
Gulf of Mexico. Whatever their
origin, control or location, they are
as unanimous in their approval of the
CMTC as are the military schools
of private foundation. Mention should
also be made of the significant action
by State Boards of Education in
either directing, or recommending to
:local authorities, the granting of high
school credit for camp attendance.
The number of CMT Camps has
grown in seven years from the orig-
inal ten to the present fifty-two.
This increase is due in part to the

The daily program has been
successfully evolved in these seven
years to meet the purpose of the camps
and the capacity of the men enrolled.
These are for the larger part in the
first year, or Basic Course, Where the
instruction is limited to the Infantry.
An increasing percentage each year
is returning for the succeeding courses,
the Red, the White and the Blue, in
the first of which the young men may
continue the Infantry work or elect
to enter and thereafter remain in the
Cavalry or Artillery fField or Coastl.
sf ff In some camps there is instruction by
the Signal Corps and it is likely that
presently there may be elementary
teaching in at least the theoretical
bases of Aviation. Enrollment in the
CMTC does not carry any military obligation, but the
best graduates are reckoned eligible to be examined
for commissions in the Organized Reserves, some
compete for appointment to the United States Military
Academy and many enlist later in the National Guard.
All camps are under a military discipline, considerate
but effective, which has its outcome in a sense of law
and order and a prompt obedience to recognized
authority. General Pershing has noted also that the
men "grow more aggressive, more confident, they get
the spirit of leadership and initiative and in every way
become better able to meet the problems of everyday
life. H Character building is thus a definite contribution
of camp training. It is coupled with a better feeling of
citizenship, which emerges not so much out of the few
hours given to teaching the basic facts and principles
of life in our democracy as out of the entire life of the A GREEK STATUE OF TODAY

Experienced hostesses guide the
social life and make an atmosphere
of home in the attractive houses
which are available for social pur-
poses at all camps. Strictly military
training is confined almost entirely
to the morning hours. The even-
ings are given to various forms of
indoor recreation, lectures, dances,
concerts and moving pictures, inter-
spersed with boxing bouts and other
forms of entertainment devised and

The afternoons are in many
ways the most enjoyable part of the
thirty days. They are devoted to a great variety of outdoor games. Every camp gives
opportunity for swimming, in ocean, lake or river or in large tanks, adequate and hygienic,
supplied by the War Department. Track work is universal, baseball, football and volley-
ball are popular, tennis, boxing, wrestling and fencing have their votaries. Each candidate
makes choice of his favorite sport and is given expert coaching. Unfortunately: Congress
has never recognized the expenses incident to this important phase of camp life. Good
provision is made for the strictly military needs of the CMTC but little money is given for
the equally important equipment indispensable to various outdoor games of the daily
schedule. In the preparation ofthe camps, not much is done for the playing fields. This
year for a typical camp the Government allowance for all athletic purposes was a trifle
more than one cent per day for each candidate, hardly enough to pay for the gasoline and
lime needed for rolling and for marking the many acres devoted to the outdoor games ofthe
young men enrolled. Doubtlcss Congress will presently be more generous,but meantime
the camps would greatly suffer
were it l10t for private donations
toward athletic equipment and re-
creation. Many communities have
taken pride in making more at-
tractive the life at the nearest
training center. Civilian Aides and
local chairmen of the Military
Training Camps Association have
helped to organize committees for
local entertainment, for baseball
games, boat rides and evening
dances, for the supply of addi-
tional athletic equipment and
for medals, pennants and prizes
for both military and athletic con-
tests. The interest of citizens in
Citizens' Camps, manifested in so
many ways, has thus been an
important element in their success.

and growth. Speculations have hovered over it, superstitions have entwined themselves
with it, as carrying a hopeful or fatal meaning. Of course. there is no occult significance
in this number, but, nevertheless, the Citizens, Military Training Camps from IQZI to
1927 have passed through a period which makes possible an estimate of their value. They
began as an experiment, now they are a permanent part of Governmental policy. Every
year has shown more clearly the contribution they make to national security and good
citizenship. "Let's Go,', the slogan of the CMTC,is a familiar phrase to millions of young
Americans. The ideals ofthe training camps are now shared by an indefinite number who
have never been able to attend them. Their graduates have carried back a gospel of clean
living, service and patriotic devotion. It is no fancy to think that many a mountain or
prairie home has now a somewhat richer life, somewhat wider interests, to some extent
a higher purpose and a better will because of the summer camps. Even now in many
towns and cities there are little groups of men who treasure the memories and continue
the associations of camp life. In View of what has been, who will attempt to measure

the possible results when not thirty-
five thousand, but sixty, eighty, even a
hundred thousand young men crowd
each year to the camps of Tomorrow?
Seven years ago the forecast was
made that camp training would give
increase of physical health and vigor,
quicker mentality, broader sympathies,
initiative, regard for constituted author-
ity, greater love for home and country.
Parents were promised that their sons
would return home from camp with a
deeper sense of their responsibilities and
with greater determination to do their
duty as men and citizens. Young men
were promised an opportunity of living
in a democracy of equal interests, rights
and obligations, under a discipline which
would make plain their personal and
social relations and tend to develop their
latent powers of leadership.
ln IQZI, the proposed training was
endorsed by recognized spokesmcn for
every group in American life. ln IO27

It is believed that all CMTC candidates
will be interested in a look behind the scenes,
to know something of the methods used in
enrolling the young men who enter the camps
of thc Third Corps Area each year.
An eiiort has been made to have a represent-
ative in each community who can furnish
information and application blanks to eligible
young men. These men are known as the
County Chairmen and County Committeemen
of the Military Training Camps Association.
All Reserve Officers are sent application

This is particularly true in the case of those
going to camp as VVhites or Blues.
There have been very few counties which
have not over-subscribed their quotas in 1927.
I hope young men appreciate the time and
effort put forth by many older friends to bring
the camps to attention, and value the services
of the doctors who make the examinations and
administer the innoculations.
In nearly all of the larger towns and cities
there have been organized CMTC Posts in
order to continue the comradeship or instruc-
tion of the camps. These Posts are in touch
with m.embers of the MTCA and are given
early information regarding camps. lf there
is none in a neighborhood, young men should
consult the County Chairman and be on the
outlook for next yearis letter with its applica-
tion blank. If they have any chums who want
to go, tell them that the early bird gets what
he wants to eat. 'fLet's Gow.

To TI-IE STUDENTS or THE FORT EUSTIS CMTC:
This, our third CMTC at Fort Eustis, is at an end and again it is my privilege
to extend to you hearty congratulations upon the excellent results accomplished
during the period that you have been with us.
It has certainly been most impressive to observe the development and
progress of the students of this camp, and it is Well realized that without the
cheerful and Willing cooperation which you have given at all times the diliiculties
of your instructors would have been greatly increased, and the great success
which has been achieved would not have been possible.
By your voluntary action in attending this camp you have signified your
desire to become better citizens by increasing your knowledge of the duties,
privileges and responsibility of citizenship, and at the same time by the military
training to make yourselves better men physically and better able to fill your
role, Whatever it may be, in the defense of your country in case of an emergency.
You have responded most generously in every way, you have worked hard,
and you have entered into the athletics and recreational facilities of the camp
with enthusiasm and energy. We hope you are returning to your homes with a
feeling that your month's sojourn at the camp has been both profitable and
We are proud of your accomplishments, we have enjoyed having you with
us, and we hope that many of you Will be With us again next year. Best Wishes
for the future of each and every one of the students of this camp.

THIS THIRTY-FOURTH INFANTRY
tPhotograph on Page 7D
While the 34th is a young regiment among American military organizations, it sprang
from worthy forbears and had distinguished service on the Mexican Border and in France,
and officers and men are proud ofthe coat that tells its story. lflxpressed in proper heraldic
terms the correct blazon is:
Shields--Azure, crusilly i:ltCllC or, on a Canton of the last masoned sable a cross patee
argent fimbriated of the first.
Craft- On a wreath of the colors a cactus fpriclcly, pearl vert.
Ilflotlo-'Toujours en avant.
Df.rc1'ijJlz'01z-Tlie regiment was formed in IQI6 at lil Paso, Texas, by transfer of
personnel from the 7th, 2OIll, and 23rd regiments. It was in the 7th Division overseas
and served in that part of Lorraine which was anciently the Barony of Commerey. The
arms of those barons were blue, scattered with golden crosses crosslet sharpened at the
foot. This has been taken for the shield. The Canton indicated the parent regiment.
The 7th fought with great gallantry before the stone wall at Fredericksburg, and the
masoned wall is from the arms of that regiment. The 20th and the 23I'Ll served in the Army
of the Potomac in the Sth Corps. The badge of this Corps was a maltese cross and the
arms of both regiments display a white one. The crest commemorates the birthplace of
the regiment. The motto is translated "Always forwardn.

HISTORY OF COMPANY "A"
The first day witnessed the complete change of two hundred boys from Maryland
into three platoons of soldiers, fully equipped in every detail. Saturday, July 9, the Com-
pany lost over half of its WVhites and Blues. The first two weeks, discounting the four days
of rest before any one in Company "AH, except the veterans, knew what it was all about,
witnessed the moulding of the second and third into two well-trained platoonsg Sergeant
I-Iibline's illness had much to do with the poor showing of the first platoon. Lieutenant
Goldstein did well, but he could not train each squad by himself.
The Iltll of July we took the oath of allegiance to our fiag. The ceremony was the
most impressive sight of the whole camp. This day also witnessed the beginning of the
The Basics and Reds had lectures on citizenship in its various forms and first aid in
its elementary stage. The Blues and Whites were instructed on the use of the automatic
rifle and general drill, up to about the 15th of July.
On the above date, all the Reserve Officers except Lieutenant Shearer were ordered
home from duty, though every man in the Company wanted them to remain.
We paraded for the first time Monday the 18th and a week later Company "Av
won a red ribbon. Captain Johnson gave us three talks a week on military tactics, and
made his talks very interesting in demonstrating the advantages of military skill. Even
though Company "An did not gain many prizes, we captured five of the eleven titles in
boxing, and came in second in the track meet.
Every man in Company UA" will regret leaving here, though longing to be with his
parents and sweetheart. They have too much manhood to say they hate to leave but on
August the 5th ninety-nine per cent of these lads will tell Captain Johnson goodby with a
tremor of sorrow in his voice.
We will leave as soldiers, fit to fight, and with a deeper understanding for our Hag in
Company "BH nosed us out of first place by taking the relay. "Ai, and "B" Com-
panies were nip and tuck until the relay-I9 to IQ was the score.
Three men formed the nucleus of our small band. Levy took third in the 50 yard dash
and would, without question, have placed in the IOO yard dash, but the finals in these two
events followed one right after the other. This game lad also tied for first in the high
jump, 5 feet 4 inches. In the 880 yard dash, Com.panv "Dv obtained first place. Hopkins
managed to take third.
The mile run was a walkout for Hopkins, who won first. while Feehly came in second.
Feehly showed out as the best sport of the Whole meet. When he saw that Hopkins and
he were way out in front, Feehly purposely allowed Hopkins to take first and a gold medal.
There is not a bigger man in the athletic world than Daniel Feehly.
Company "A" won top honors in boxing, through the efforts of five of its huskiest.
Herb Roufman took the 120 pound class medal with ease. 'fWhitey,, Bender won the I6O
pound class in the hardest fight of the finals. Bob Dennis became title holder of the 150
pound after many tough struggles. "Sid,' Lampe came thru in the 130 pound class, as
We all expected, due to the expert training received in bouts with Ballimore. In the 125
pound class, Manny Fox won the title in a walkaway.
This sport found Company "AH sadly lacking in aquatic experience. Fox, the 125

Company "A" baseball team certainly had tough luck this year. This was due to
lack of practice before the regular games were played. Albert R. Gibson was elected
captain on Sunday and the first game was scheduled for Monday, so he had only a hazy
idea of who could play ball and who couldn't. Our team put up a good fight but lost the
first game to Company "Bn by the close score of 6-5. On YVednesday we received a de-
feat from "C" Company by the same score. Captain Gibson pitched both games in fine
fashion, but lost on account of the poor fielding of his team in each contest. The third,
and last game of the league was forfeited to Company HAH by "Di, Company. These
were the only league games, and so we were "out of luckw, even though we won every
other game we played. The team developed wonderfully and won a number of games
from various companies. Among the victims were Company HC" of the 52nd Artillery,
and Company "CU ofthe CMTC. The whole team put up a very good fight for the honor
of good old Company HA". Gibson, Bender, and Morris played the best brand of ball.
The team comprised Albert R. Gibson CCaptainj, Robert G. Dennis, and Kenneth
C. Carr, pitchersg VVilliam Dismer, I-B3 Hamilton Brendergost, 2-B3 Russel R. Bender,
SSg Charles N. Russel, 3-B, Robert Morris, Bernard H. Keener, Calvin Gareis, VVilliam
F. Ore, Fielders, and Arthur R. Cooper, Catcher.
Graham McNam.ee came down to Company HAH on the 27th of July so that he could
be present to broadcast the famous fight between ':Speedy" Speiden and 'flckyu Vogts.
From direct observation taken from the ringside during the 20 rounds it was noticed that
Graham was worked up to a fever heat andthe "mike" fairly jumped as he let the world
know about the terrible left of Speedy's and that man-killing right hook of Icky's as each
in its turn came home. .
The 21st round started with both fighters standing toe to toe and exchanging blow
for blow. "Speedy,' finally landed a punch that made "Icky" change off and spar awhile
to clear his head. Wonderful footwork came into evidence at this point, both of the
lighters displaying the finer points that are rarely seen except in championship bouts.
The round ended by both men being helped to their corners.
The last round was, in the opinion of the old boxers present, the fastest of the fight.
From the bell, both fighters went at it furiously. The field in which they were boxing
was slowed up for a distance of at least 50 yards by the spectators in an effort to keep up
to the fighters. Right and lefts were flying around so fast that a ringside spectator could
not distinguish the man behind the punch. "Speedy,' had to retreat from a furious assault
of "Icky,s". The round had twenty seconds to go when the referee was hit by two low
ones coming in opposite directions and the famous fight ended with a draw. McNamce
declared that it was one of the fastest, most scientific fights he had ever had the good for-
tune to witness.
The second and third platoons have discovered how to use the fire buckets that are
placed in each barracks for repelling attacks of outsiders. The third platoon also had the
excellent .service of having their clothes washed without removing them. Hercafter,
instead of hanging the buckets on the nails where we found them, the said nails will be used
for the hanging of coats, and the buckets will be placed on either side of the door for in-

HISTORY OF COMPANY "B"
This year Company "BH started out on the right foot with 192 men all eager to. bring
laurels and honor to their beloved HB".
The processing made the men feel rather uncomfortable, but that was soon over and
the first day had begun. We found ourselves in well-aired rooms, cooled and sometimes
heated by the golf course that runs in front of the Company street. After receiving all
equipment and checking civilian clothes, we left for the many points of interest in Fort
Eustis, then returned to "chow" and to bed for a much-needed rest.
Five days of hard, steady drill took the k.inks out of the lines and we were awarded
rifles. More drill came and then our first review. The second week was a good one for
"B", as the regimental parade for the best company was won twice.
The third week brought to us the best squad, best Blue candidate, and best platoon.
During this week we made some very good scores on the rifle practice gallery. The swim-
ming meet was won by "B" by a margin of four points over the nearest competitor.
The fourth week saw the fellows on the zoo yard rifie range shooting for record. Many
qualified for the marksman and sharpshooter medals. Then the regiment hiked to York-
town and back. This event closes the CMTC camp every summer. We then collected
our personal belongings, and after the last night, which turned into a riot, we were on our
way home from a very enjoyable thirty days at Fort Eustis.
The Company expresses here its gratitude to that fine staff of ofiicers who did
everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. We hope to have them back next year.
ATHLETICS I-N COMPANY "B"
JAS. I. IQYLE, WM. E. WOLFE
When we mention athletics we immediately think of Company "B", the leaders in
practically all sports in Fort Eustis for this year's CMTC period. The boys from Mary-
land and the District of Columbia stepped forth in all their glory, upholding the honor
of Company 'fB".
Company "BH can look back with pride when they think of our national sport-base-
ball. For the baseball team., even if it did not cop the championship, can find solace in
the fact that it won the first three games played to place first in the battalion. Our Com-
pany had wonderful material, but time was lacking to develop championship form.
The "Little World Series" was very thrilling. ln neither game could the winner be
picked until the last man was out, so close was the competition. Our one alibi can be
attributed to the injury sustained by O. L. Jeter, captain and coach. Jeter sprained his
ankle during the initial championship game with Company "H", thereby eliminating
him from tbe second game. The team. consisted of the following players: Grant, Mathews,
C. A. Faith, Smith, Scarborough, T. Corner, Wm. Wolfe, E. Naughton, H. Kimmey,
Kedy, Pepper, J. Kyle, West, Seitz, N. Wooley, Cook, Edwards and J. Timmons.
This year's swimming meet was but a repetition of the previous years, where "BH
nosed "Cv to finish first and win the championship. Here are the men who did their
share to put Company "BH over the top Hin the aquatic circle": C. A. Faith, winner of
the 40 yard breast stroke, and F. Blake, who took first place in the 200 yard and second
in the 80 yard free style. The meet was clinched when "B" tied with "CH for first place

HISTORY OF COMPANY NO"
Fort Eustis-"O-D"-Fort Eustis
T. B. DRUM
Under the burning sun of El Paso, Texas, at Camp Cotton, Company SCN, 34th
Infantry was first organized. July 15, 1916, was the date, and Colonel Dentler became
the first leader. Until ordered overseas, it guarded the Texan border. Soon came the
call to duty, and the 34th with Company "CH was sent over to do its bit. Placed in the
midst of battle, Company "CH was ever noted for its coolness and bravery in action and
its untiring efforts in carrying out the commands of its officers. These traits made Com-
pany "C,' then, as it is today, one of the best moraled companies in the army.
With this background of tradition and record, the CMTC men of Com.pany "C"
would have been poor indeed had they not caught the vision and made a vow to be a little
better, a little snappier, a little bit ahead of the other companies in Fort Eustis. Add
to this the fact that we were Pennsylvanians surrounded by companies from other states,
eager to uphold the honor of the state from which We came, and you will have the secret
formula that put us on our toes, ready to give our best that we might win.-
Was it worth while? Six streamers flying from our guidion wave the answer. Each
is the result of victory in competition. Two red streamers are signs that Company "Cn
was twice best company in the battalion. Four blue streamers show that Company "C"
was four times chosen best company in the entire regiment--once by Major General
Summerall, Chief of Staff of the United States Army, himself.
On the range Company "C" had every Red candidate qualify. Such scores as
McMillen's 74 out of 75, Enterline's 71 out of 75, and Lewis's 69 out of 75 attest the straight
eyes of Pennsylvania boys. 8595 of Company "C" qualified. That speaks for itself.
In victory and defeat, in joy and disappointments, Company HC" stood for earnest
action, and the spirit that never says die. To our officers-Captain Ware, Captain Rod-
man, Captain lVlclVlenamin and Lieutenant Hetzer, and the others who gave us their sup-
port, we give our thanks. Our victories are theirs-all due to their untiring efforts to
provide us with their best. Especially do we give our thanks to the leader and friend of
us all-Captain Ware, who by his undivided efforts made us what we are.

When down the dusty street
When you hear a lot o noise
if is if 'lr
3 6 7
You hear the steady beat
Of tuned and rhythmic feet,
You'll know it's Comp'ny HC".
When you see barracks clean,
Or rifles' glist'ning gleam
And men with happy mien,
You'll know it's Complny ',C .
When you see players in a game
Carrying on through loss or gain,
And being jovial just the same,
From a bunch of Pennsy boys,
Sharing mutual sobs and joys,
You'll know it's C0mp'ny HC".
When a rookie you salutes
And displays his well-shined boots,
You can safely "bet-your-boots"
That heis from Comp'ny HC".
Three cheers for Captain Ware,
Give "louies,', too, their share,
Let's go boysg on the air-
You'll know it's Comp'ny "C,'. 'cComp'ny 'CV Comjfny 'CV Comp'1zy'C'."
From a far country came the Pennsylvania boys to Fort Eustis. Being acclimatized
and duly inured to the "mild" climate of sunny Virginia, they cast their eyes about,
figuratively speaking, for worlds to conquer. They found them! It is our humble wish
in a few lines to leave to our posterity a record of achievement worthy of the Keystone
state from which we came. I
Our streamers, we have mentioned before. They fly from our guidion where all can
see them-a testimonial to Captain VVare, his 0Hicers, and the cooperation of the Penn-
sylvania boys, soldiers every one of them. Our range records also show what Company
"CH is made of. Attention now to Pennsylvania boys as athletes.
The speedball team won the championship. Need more be said? Appel, Long,
Kutz, Frederick, Haller, Beale and their cohorts were so well trained that they could
almost have won sitting down. Every game was a victory. Only once did an opposing
team even score. Sergeant Umbergeris wonders "knew their stufiwg and victory was
In baseball, while losers, the Pennsylvania boys were the kind of losers that are victors
still. After winning from Companies "AU and "D" the boys, lost a heartbreaking game
to Company "B,'. We honor Company "B" in this victory, but we glory in the way the
Keystone State boys went down in defeat.
In swimming, Company "CU took second place in the regular meet. Practiced in
the sunny waters of the beautiful Susquehanna, it is little wonder that the Pennsylvania
boys could show a thing or two about the fine art of swimming. Appel won the 80 yard
free stroke. Flick won the 40 yard back stroke. Lippy took second place in the 40 yard
back stroke, and the relay team tied for first place-a good record for one lone bright
The glare of the spotlight early lured the Pennsylvania gaze, and when the final whistle
blew three Company "C" men had won championships in flstic honors. Beale won the
165 pound class, Whitmore the 135 pound class, Haller the 120 pound class, and Richards
took second place in the same class. In records such as these Company "CH rests content.
The track records have too recently been handed in to judge with true accuracy,
but Company "C" had Gardner first in the 220, Rouzer third in the 220, and Appel second
in both the 880 and the 440 yard race.
Always fighting for the best, Company " C" is satisfied with the record of its members.
Sporting records are but transient things at best, and soon forgotten, but the friendships
made in victories,kept through defeats,and forgedin closer bonds by mutual aspirations for
the Pennsylvania Company will live forever. With this in mind we ring down the curtain
on the 1927 season. Company "C", Officers, and Regulars, and men-soldiers, athletes,
and gentlemen, we bid you hail and adieu.

HISTORY OF COMPANY "D"
On the 7th of July, 1927, there arrived at Camp Eustis, Va., about 1600 young men
eager to learn the duties of a true citizen to his country, and to pledge to that country
their loyal support. Of these 1600 young men, IQO were formed in a group to be designated
as Company "D", CIVITC. This group was composed of three Blue, six White, fifty-seven
Red and 124 Basic candidates. For the purpose of instruction, a training cadre of regular
army men was attached to the Company, making the total ten ofiicers and 204 men.
The candidates comprising this organization represented the states of Pennsylvania,
Maryland, and Virginia and the District of Columbia. The greatest number was from the
grand old Keystone State, and the smallest number from Virginia.
The Company started its regular duty on July Sth, most of the candidates receiving
their first training in the military profession. The first few days were taken up with recruit
instruction, and on Sunday, July 10th, the Company, with the rest of the regiment was
paraded and all required to take the oath of allegiance to the United States.
After the first week of recruit instruction, the Company received its machine gun
equipment and after familiarizing themselves with the nom.enclature and mechanism of
the gun, the men were instructed in range practice, which was completed during the third
week of instruction. E
The m.orale of the Company was of the best type. Everyone entered into the work
with a willing spirit with the result that the Company won four ribbons in succession for
the appearance made on parade.
It is to be desired that every candidate who attended the CMTC in 1927 has been
so imbued with the spirit of service and patriotism that they will return to their homes
and carry the message of preparedness to all with whom they may come in contact, and it
is the hope of everyone that we shall all meet again in 1928 with a larger and better CMTC.
"D" Company was very unfortunate in athletics this year, due to the fact that Lady
Luck favored us with nary a smile. It seemed that in every gam.e the breaks alm.ost always
went to our opponents, moreover, our men were total strangers to each other, coming
from all sections of the Corps Area. We heartily congratulate the winning teams on their
The first sport on which we centered our interest was baseball. In the second Week
of camp Lieutenant Sutton's call for baseball candidates was answered by about twenty
men and after several practices a squad of twelve men emerged. In the first game the team
played good ball until the fourth inning, when a jinx arose and the opponents scored seven
runs, sewing the game up. Then pitchers were reversed and the team played air-tight
ball during the remainder of the game. Due to misunderstanding, a game with Company
MAU was forfeited. The next game was with Company HC". Again the breaks went
to our opponents, and we lost but the team was a bunch of good losers.
The Company was represented in the boxing arena by a few fighters that she was lucky
enough to draw out of the numbers of athletes who came to camp.
In the swimming meet the Company was not successful, mainly because of lack of
training, short notice to mem.bers of the team, and the fact that most of our boys live
In the track meet our luck came back just a little bit. VVe had a taste of how it feels
to win a few points, anyway. We gave up last place to Company "F", with tears of grief
at leaving a place with- which We had become so well acquainted. VVe won first in the
high jump and second in the relay, scoring eight points,

RAVINGS OF A ROOKIE GONE WRONG
"The Company Dud"
Thirty days' vacation at government expense is what lured me to a CMTC. Follow-
ing the instructions as published in the Red, White and Blue folder, I applied for admission,
filled in the prescribed blanks, took three shots and a scratch on the arm and then started
for Ft. Eusless. Soon found out that Barnum was right, for hundreds of others were also
headed for the vacation. .
Arrived at Ft. Eusless the 7th of july. My instructions told me to report to the
camp commander. When I arrived I tried to find the camp commander but he wasn't
around. One of the fellows that was at the camp the year before told me to call the com-
mander on the phone and tell him that I was here. Finding a phone booth close by I did.
My! that man was rough, the language that he used was something frightful. It burned
the wire in two. He told me to wait right there, and that he would be right up in his
closed car. Well, if it wasn't for some of the fellows telling me that the Colonel never meant
what he said I guess that I would have spent my thirty days waiting for him.
I got into a line that was forming and marched into a building where they made us
take off all of our clothes. A bunch of doctors paraded us around, made us open our mouths
and say "AhHI-IH" and we were then told to go over to the other side of the building and
draw our uniforms.
You should have seen those uniforms. They fit fine, that is the belts did. The breeches

believe that the Government stops to have a steer cut down when it has its shoes made.
The leggings, "Oi Oil", the wrap variety. You start wrapping them the first day of camp
and when the thirty days are up you are still trying to wrap them. CMT Camps ought to
be for the w'hole summer, so one can learn to wrap those leggings. After we fell into our
clothes, we were loaded in trucks and taken to the company we were assigned to. I drew
"D" Company. ,
All of us rookies were placed in charge of Reds, Whites, Blues, Regular Army ser-
geants, Reserve officers and Regular Army officers. Each of the so-named was a boss

for a Basic,which meant that each rookie had an average of 4M bosses, counting the
Reds as only half a boss.
The Reds are second year men, so called because they make a Rookie see Red. The
Whites are third year men who help the Reds make the Rookies see Red, and the Blues
fourth year men, who make you feel Blue. The Regulars help the Blues out, and when they
get tired they sic Reserve OHicers on us.
The day after we arrived in camp we were taken out on a drill field and shown how
to act as soldiers. There wasn't any danger of not receiving the right instructions, for
every one of us had a dozen instructors, each telling us how to do it in a different manner.
I was in a squad with a hard-boiled Blue over m.e. He says, "Fall in". I asks him,
"Where,'. He says, "Don't get smart, Rookie. Fall in means stand straight, heels to-
gether, toes out, chest out, stomach in, eyes to the front, and head upf' He must have
thought we were contortionists. He then says, "Right Dress". I told him that this was
my right dress. Then I gets bawled out again. ,
After a few days of individual instruction- we were formed in a company, and herded
around. One officer said that for the next CMT Camp he was going to recommend that
they use shepherd dogs instead of officers to herd us around the field. One of the Sergeants
told me that one of the reasons why we had to pass in review so often was so the officers
could Hash their swords and get used to them. The swords cost each officer 23.98 at Sears
and Roebuck, and if they couldn't display them, they would be out that much.
Well, thirtydays of CMTC taught me a lot about War, so Iill give a summary of what
I learned: '
Napoleon said that an Army moves on its stomach. The CMTC moved by whistles
and bugles. If all the wind that was used in blowing bugles and whistles could be utilized,
it would be enough to form a gale on the Atlantic Ocean the year 'round.
Sherman is quoted as saying that war is hell, but he never soldiered in a CMTC
Where they had Reds, Whites, Blues, Reds and Oiiicers telling you how to do it.
Variety is the spice of life, but a rookie prefers bunk fatigue.
'Sergeants are the root of all evil.
Love thy buddie as thyself but leave his things alone.
Pay day in the Army is a day set aside to pay debts, but there isn't any pay day in
Curiosity is what gOt a rookie in wrong. -
P. S.-I forgot the jiggers. We all got jiggers, and they were close companions. A
vet of the World War in our Company said they reminded him of cooties, and that a good
way to get rid of them was to lay your clothes near the river and when the jiggers crawled
off to get a drink to pick up your clothes and run. I tried it and sat up all night by the
river but didn't see any of them go for a drink. Told the vet so, and he said, well, the only
other way to do was to soak your clothes in gasoline and touch a match to the gasoline.
I stole some of the Regular "top,s" gas from his car and tried it. Besides losing my clothes
the utopia made me do K. P. the rest of the camp. Never believe what a World War
vet tells you.
HEARD AT DRILL '
Lt. Chisholm-"Now when I say 'Fall In', fall in on me."
Voice in rear-"Now is our chance,-come on!"
If Ed Myers would forget Adeline-
If Coles were in step-
If "Mamma" wouldnit "Gold Brick"-
If Dick Herman didn't get THAT letter-
If Ed Bodenhorn would be at Assembly-

HISTORY OF COMPANY "E"
lt was not until the evening of Thursday, july 7th, that we began to realize the vital
significance of General Sherman's quotation: "War is Hell". Not that we were, or that
there was any probability of our engaging in a bonalide battle, but the potential truth of
General Shermanls statement was made easier to conceive.
Relieved of our "civies',, we, the young men who the day before had been students,
clerks, butchers or plumbers, clothed in wool O. D., had become soldiers, at least tem-
porarily. How natty and soldierly we appeared those first few days Ol. However, we soon
became habituated and after the first week aClVlTCstudent could be easily differentiated
from the background.
lt did not take the Company MEM boys long to learn and enter into the spirit of the
game. With the directing influence of Captain Chance, Company Commander, and
Captain jones, the fundamentals were easily understood. Getting up in the morning at
the unearthly hour of five olclock was one thing which we at first thought was beyond
endurance. First came that two weeks' period of training in close order drill, manual of
arms, military courtesy, and calisthenics. But during this period it was not "all work and
no playv for there were the swimming pool, baseball games, track, tennis and numerous
other activities to engage our attention after luncheon. There were also those very enjoy-
able trips to Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown. And we just couldn't forget those
dances at the CMTC Recreation Hall, though it required the virile qualities of youth to
break in on a dance. '
Our second period of training carried with it intensive instruction and training in the
use of the rifle. Many hot hours of the morning were spent on the rifle range, where we
strove diligently to outrival our fellows in the art of marksmanship. As usual, Company
"EH took its place among the leaders. We had some of the best individual rifiemen in the
camp. Another feature of this particular period was the parade reviews each evening.
These reviews, though sometimes tiresome and exceedingly hot labor, never failed to thrill
us and consequently bring forth our best efforts.
So here's to the boys of Company "E", a more gcntlemanly, friendly crowd we have
never met. Although there probably existed differences, none parted enemies and all
returned to their homes with the firm conviction that they will all be back for more in '28.
As far as sports are concerned, Company "EH made a very good showing. The base-
ball squad, under the capable leadership of "Rub" Thompson, won three out of the four
games played. Gable, the elongated Basic, seemed to have a strangle hold on the job of
captain, he led the swimmers both in name and game by winning the 40 yard breast stroke
and also brought the volleyball team to a point where it could hold its head up in the air.
Ship gave us all a surprise by tieing Shum of "G" Company for individual honors in track.
He scored eleven points and encouraged his cohorts to bring it up to thirteen. Palumbo,
one of our representatives in the fistic art, brought the IIS pound championship to Com-
pany "E". Addington, one of his brothers in the same field, reached the finals.
Sports of every,nati1re are encouraged by all the officers in charge, as they believe that
a healthy body and a clean mind m.ake for better citizenship.

who, year after year, in their capacity as commissioned oliieers of one united army, have
attended these training camps for civilians. Voluntarily they leave important work, and,
possibly, the chance of a carefree vacation, to work out your problems with the ofiicers of

HISTORY OF COMPANY "F"
With the help of our oHicers and CMTC sergeants, the Whites and Blues, and the
regulars with our Company we won best company in the regiment. We have added to our
red ribbon with one more red and white honor.
Among our Blues we have Bratman, who hails from Baltimore and is a comedy all
by himself. The Emporia gang with their special built Ford has caused much special
comment and no wonder, for if looks told anything, just guess what it would be.
Our dumb squad has been added to until it looks like the largest platoon in the Com-
pany. Captain Shoemaker said one morning that he was greatly minded to put the whole
Company in the extra duty squad.
Not least, if last, the whole Company wishes to give our mess sergeant a vote of thanks
for the fine food he furnished us during the camp.
D. S. KULP
After a season of tough battles and victories, the speedball team of Company UF",
second battalion champions, lost the championship of the regiment to "CH Company of
the first battalion. "CU Company won with a score of 6-O after a hard fought battle.
The first game, which was played with Company "HH, we won, I6-3, after a hard battle.
The next game was with Company "En, victory again falling to 'Ti' Company with a
Score of 6-O. Our next victory was won from Company "G" after a hard battle, with a
final score of I3-O. Our Hnal game, was with "C" Company, the champions of the first
battalion. They won from us with a final score of 6-O, our only defeat out of four games.
Thus ended the specdball season for Company "F,'.
The following made up the team: Smith, H. D., lCaptainDg Smythe, Robertson,
D. P. Tiller, Fulcher, Kulp, Sykes, Evans, Dyer and Hamlette.
WEEK END TREATS
A ride to Williamsburg, usually in the rain
Passes which you never get
The opportunity to walk off demerits
Many promises of an easy schedule
Listening' to All-Am.erican star bull artists
Sometimes ice cream and chicken, if you happen to be at mess on time
Always lots of red tape.
FAMOUS, LAST WORDS
Captain Shoemaker-"Hey you, wake up over there."
Captain Landolt-"Cut out the noisef'
Lieutenant Rockafellow-"Shirts two-fifty, hats three dollars, hat cords two bits,-
and this equipment must be paid for, if loSt.',

Fort Eustis-"O-D"-Fort Eustis
HISTORY OF COMPANY "G"
For many years Company "G" CMTC, at Fort Eustis, has attracted considerable
attention because of its military, athletic, and social prominence. Members of the Com-
pany experience a certain gratification as they review the Vast number of evidences of
victory and excellence in various endeavors. The streamers carried at the front of the
Company signify efiiciency in military contests. The mere fact that Company "G" is
the color company self-evidences attainment. Members of the volleyball team closed
their season at the end of camp still looking for other teams to beat. This team scored
not only bare victories, but won the various games by large margins.
'The annual dance given by Company "G" was one of the leading events of the sum.mer.
Music was furnished by the Fifty-second Artillery orchestra and large numbers of girls
from William and Mary College, Newport News, Norfolk, and various other places were
in attendance. The "hop" committee deserves credit for its efforts in arranging the dance.
Comm.issioned Officers throughout the entire post have congratulated Company
"GH on its many attainments, and especially in view of the fact that fewer Officers were
assigned to this Company than to any other. Lieutenant Willis 1. Plummer was just
beginning a very interesting training program when he was transferred from this Company
to his present duties as Ofiicer-in-Charge of the annual. The Company felt this loss im-
mediately, although Captain F. W. Hyde, company. commander, did not allow anything
to interrupt the progress of his men. I
On the rifie range several candidates distinguished themselves by making commend-
able scores. The five men scoring ninety or above out of a possible one hundred are Thomas
S. Turner, Henry F. Safley, P. B. Barrett. Henry C. F. Cook and Charles M. Grizzard.
The five Basics scoring seventy or above out of a possible seventy-live are Hugh P. Don-
naly, Howard L. McNamara, Caleb L. Upshur, William G. Lumkin, and Wade M. Fleisher.
Much credit should be given several members of the baseball team, despite the fact
that our victories were few in number. Company "E" won from us by three points, as
did Company "F", while several other games were even closer.
You might just as well meet the train tomorrow night, as I am coming home because
I don't want to get killed here at CMT Camp. It is something terrible here. Some funny-
looking fellow called the sergeant, all dressed up in soldier's clothes, told us fellows at noon
that we would get stuck if we don't make our bunks right. I don't want to get killed.
I've seen pigs get stuck and they always die. I ain't never seen a bunk and I don't know
what one is, and naturally I can't make one, let alone make one right.
Yesterday when I first entered this camp they must have thought that something
was the matter with me. They made m.e take off all my clothes and then I had to go down
a long alley and turn in a whole lot of stalls and let a whole lot of men in uniform examine
me. They listened to see if my heart was making too much noise. I know why they did
that, because they don't want any noise at night after we go to bed. Another guy looked
in my mouth to see how much I could eat.
Living here ain't much like living at home except getting up early, and even then they
don't have any cows to milk or chickens to feed. And the boys here want a lot of things
that I never heard of. One fellow sent me to the captainis office for some reveille oil,
and the captain told me to "beat it" and then laughed. Another guy was trying to tie
his barracks bag and sent me out for a skirmish line and when I asked for it the sergeant
said I was green, but those guys must be green too, I think.
When we went out to drill they made me corporal and said to get all the names in my
squad. I asked where I should get the names andthen they laughed. I finally learned,
but I never could find the guy who was supposed to be number four in the front rank.
We had ice cream today for dinner, so maybe Iill stay.
With love, Willie Live

WHAT WE LEARN IN CAMP
S. A. TAYLOR
About the first thing we learned in camp was that no matter how dumb we may have
seemed to the top sergeant, we felt even dumber. Yes, a good name for the Basics would
be Green. They have Reds, Whites and Blues,--so, why not Greens? No, we don't
mean kale or cabbage-we get plenty greens of that sort in the mess hall.
Policing doesnft always mean what we thought it did. It might mean watching or
protecting people, but more often it means peeling spuds, picking up match sticks and
ducks, scrubbing floors and other like duties.
"Fall in" is a command, but you don't have to fall into anything. If you are in bed
it means get out darn quick and get in line for something-we know not what. But line
up we shall and must.
We donit need any mattress oil at camp but we use lots of elbow grease.
DIARY OF CANDIDATE BLANK
Edited by S. A. TAYLOR '
July 7-It says in the little blue book given us that we should keep a diary. But gosh,
too much happens around here to write it all down. Guess I'll write some. First im-
portant thing I started doing was "falling in " line. That must be important because it's
done so often. Why, it happens most as often as the rooster crowing at home. '
July 8-'Wav behind on this diary. Too much happens. Things never stop happening
around here. Things happened so fast yesterday I didn't know half the time which way
I was going. I bet after they finished examining me they knew more about me than I
July I2-Forgot all about my diary last few days. I dropped my rifle while drilling
and the captain made me get a mop handle from the supply room. I felt more like a
fool than I am-if that's possible. Bet I never drop another rifie, even if I'm killed in battle.
July I3-Went to the infirmary and got the army-wait a minute, I was innoculated
and vaccinated. .
July I4-Lot of us went to the warehouse to get clothes changed. Afraid to leave camp
with the breeches I had.
July I6'PaSSCd in review before Colonel Darrah. He's the big guy of this place-
in charge of whole camp.
July 20-Went on range today. Dressed in "fatigue clothes", we made a hell of a
looking army. .Fatigue clothes can't be describedg you have to see them.
July 24-Blank woulda? let me wrile what he had down for thif date. I think hz -went
to .tee hi: girl.-'Ed.Q
July 2-CQ-'OH pit detail today. Rifles and machine guns made an awful racket. It
was like a battle with the bullets Hying over our heads. But we didn't fire back..
July 26-Major General Summerall visited camp. Parade in afternoon.
July 27-Got a little of everything in camp, including the delightful K. P. Today
I was a telephone orderly on the firing line. Later exchanged with someone and kept
score on Target 37. Got my third shot of innoculation.
July 28-First platoon had a double-time shirt-tail parade last night about I2 o'clock
for making noise in barracks. They raised hell and put a block under it. Getting ready
for Yorktown hike. Issued Held equipment today.
July 29-Parents' Day. Lots of visitors. Parade.
August I-Set out for Yorktown early this m.orning. Eight miles doesnit seem like
much but it made us tired enough. Saw the site of the Battle of Yorktown.
August 2-Returned to camp this morning. We feel like real soldiers after marching
to Yorktown with packs on our backs and sleeping in tents.
August 4-Getting ready to leave camp. '
August 5-Good-bye, Fort Eustis. Made lots of friends in camp and the training
was gocd for me.

Fort Eustis-"O-D"-Fort Eustis
HISTORY OF COMPANY "HH
WILMER L. MYERS
lt was with various motives that the group of boys who were later to be known as
Company "H" left their homes in Virginia and the District of Columbia to journey to
Fort Eustis. But each of us received something that he did not anticipate and each of us
is a better man for having shared the common 'portion of rookies for a month.
The doughnuts and lem.onade served at the entrance to the Fort were a portent of
what was to follow. A physical examination rivallcd Henry Ford's assembly processes.
A first mess was a liberal education with particular stress laid on the fine arts.
Whatever traces of home-sickness may have been present were soon dispelled. Indeed,
there was so much going on every minute of the day that little time was left for dreams
of home. Of course, there was always time for a letter to mother or to the girl or boy friend.
Can we ever forget Sergeant Lizer's one and only method of distributing mail?
It did not take long to buckle down to business. Company "H" soon learned to
respect orders. Its Ofiicers commanded the obedience and admiration of their men. Once
organized and given a few preliminary drills, those men found the rest easy.
A few broken backs were suffered at the first calisthenics, but no member of Com-
pany "H', so distinguished himself as to be invited to carry out exercises in front of the
We were proud to be a machine gun company. We were glad when the first whiff
of burnt powder reached our nostrils on the range, and we were delighted with the scores
that "H'f Company men turned in.
The memory of those dances that stirred the post at sem.i-weekly intervals will always
be cherished. Had it not been for the cooperation of the Hostess and her assistants in
bring-ing to the Post girls from Norfolk, Newport, Hampton and Williamsburg, life would
not have been nearly so livable. l
"H" Company's dance was one of the brilliant affairs of our brief sojourn, graced
with the attendance of Major Mason, Captains Lowery and Palle, and Lieutenants Taylor
and Rudolph, and enlivened by splendid music. It will be remembered as the most colorful
and enjoyable dance of the season.
Coming down to the military side of things, the outstanding battle of the summer
was the Second Bull Run, in which the Confederate Army under General John H. Quick
routed the Yankees under General Roberts in spite of General Roberts' able corps of assist-
ants. Next to Bull Run the Battle of Bunkup Spill takes rank as a notable maneuver on
the part of the Yankees.
But of course we had our lighter moments, when fighting was in the background.
During such moments we delighted to hold parades. It may be safely said that the first
section of the second platoon took highest honors with their shirt-tail parade from II :OO
p. m. on through the night.
Whatever honors have accrued to the guidon of Company "HH are largely due to the
firm leadership of its commanders. To Captain Lowery it owes its deepest regard for his
untiring efforts to keep it always among the best. Captain Palle has won a place for him-
self in the heart of every boy.
Dispersement of camp separated us, perhaps never to meet again. May "The Star
Spangled Banner" always bring to every bosom the same thrill, the same national pride,
the same do or die spirit that came when, at the ceremony of Retreat, it first rang through
the environs of Fort Eustis, Virginia.

Immediately after supper the whistle for retreat sounded and an absent-minded
private grabbed his mess kit, then ran to the mess hall.

At Company Dance, Agnew went up to Courtney and said, "Do you want to meet

Our company sent it's quota of fifty to each of the Williamsburg trips. The trucks
which carried us were none too comfortable, but good fellowship made up for that. July
16, the men visited VVilliam and Mary College, the grounds of the House of Burgesses,
and the Confederate Memorial statue. Certain men visited the '4Bughouse", it seems,
but managed to escape. The most popular amusement going and coming was hailing
passing cars, especially those containing fair damsels. Autoists were prepared for "H"
Company, since their trucks were last in line, and so by the time they got to us, they knew
what to expect. Songs were much in evidence.
Fifty others of the Company made the same trip the following Saturday. The same
places were visited. The weather was a bit wet and as there was no shelter in the trucks
every man was thoroughly saturated when we got back to camp.

ABRAHAM EUSTI8 1
Abraham Eustis was born at Petersburg,
. Virginia, March 26, 1786. He studied law,
under Chief Justice Parker of Massachusetts
and was admitted to the bar in 1807, after
having been graduated from Harvard in 1804.
The father of seven children, he first married
Rebecca Sprague of Dedham, Massachusetts,
and second, Patience A. B. Izard of Charles-
ton, South Carolina. He died at Portland,
Maine, June 27, I843, while in command of
the Sixth Military Department, the funeral
taking place the following day from the
Episcopal Church in Portland and the body
conveyed by rail to Boston for burial. As an
officer of Artillery, he was regarded as one of
the most efficient of his day.
Eustis was appointed from Massachusetts,
May 3, 1808, to be a captain in the Regiment
of United States Light Artillery, was appointed
major, same regiment, March 15, 1810, was
brevetted lieutenant colonel, September IO,
1813, for meritorious services. He was ap-
pointed to the full rank of lieutenant colonel,
May 8, 1822, being at the same time trans-
ferred to the 2nd United States Artillery.
He was transferred to the 4th United States Artillery, ,August 22, 1822, was brevetted
colonel, September 10, 1823, for ten years faithful service in the same grade, was brevetted
brigadier general, June 30, 1834, and transferred to the ISI United States Artillery. Eustis
especially distinguished himself at the capture of York, Cnow Torontoj. He also served
in the Black Hawk, and Florida Wars. -
Designated to be the lieutenant colonel of the Artillery School upon its organization,
Abraham Eustis was placed in command by the absence of Colonel Fenwick, and he served
as the first Commandant at Fort Monroe from March 31, 1824, to January 31, 1825. He
was again in command from August 1, 1825, to November IZ, 1826, and from October
13, 1831, to the close of the Artillery School in 1834. To Lieutenant Colonel Abraham
Eustis much credit is due for organizing this important Arm.y school, which has continued
under varying forms until the present day.
When in 1908, it became necessary to select a site for a heavy artillery target range,
Mulberry Island was selected, and the camp, now a permanent post, was named for General
Abraham Eustis, a fitting tribute to the first Commandant of Coast Artillery.

The Lower Virginia Peninsula is beyond doubt the most historic section of the Old
Dominion. Here it was at Jamestown that the first permanent English settlement in the
New World was made on May 13, 1607, and at Jamestown, in I6IQ, the mother of American
legislatures, the Virginia House of Burgesses, began its deliberations. The colony was
much troubled during the rebellion of Nathaniel Bacon, Jr. against Governor Berkeley,
and Jamestown never recovered the glory it once possessed. Measures were taken to
establish the seat of government at Middle Plantation, now Williamsburg. This was
effected in 1699, and after the removal of the Colonial Assembly Jamestown was gradually
abandoned as a town.
Williamsburg shares with Annapolis the quaint charm of an opulent colonial town.
And town it is in population, although since 1722 it has been a city. The very names of
the streets are suggestive of patches and powdered wigs. The court church of Colonial
Virginia, Burton Parish, was first begun in 1632, the present gem of architecture, erected
out of appropriations by the House of Burgesses, dating from 1710. Burton Parish has
inherited not only the traditions of Jamestown but also the com.munion silver of that
church, and the baptismal font used in its ritual is that from which Pocahontas received
consecration as the Christian Princess Rebecca. William and Mary College was the
hrst American institution to receive a charter from the Crown, granted in 1693, and was
the only college to be granted a coat-of-arms by the Royal College of Heralds. William
and Mary thus shares with Harvard, 1636, and King William's School, 1696, now St. John's
College, Annapolis, the distinction of the greatest antiquity among American institutions
of learning. Williamsburg is twelve miles from Eustis and eight from Jamestown.
For the garrison at Eustis, the salt-water bathing in the York River at Yorktown is
the main attraction of this old town, and it is readily reached, for it is only seven miles
away. T-he stately column of the Surrender Monument is the dominating note of York-
Newport News, the metropolis of the Lower Virginia Peninsula, was a cornfleld in
18801 in 1896 it was incorporated as a city and now has a population of 48,ooo. Its name
is popularly believed to have been taken from that Newport who, near this spot, brought
good tidings to the discouraged colonists of Jamestown. At Newport News are located
the term.inals of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad and a great shipbuilding plant where
was reconditioned the S. S. Leviathan. Beyond Newport News is Buckroe Beach, on
Chesapeake Bay, Hampton, the oldest continuous English settlement in America.

I The ceremony of enrollment took place at Fort Eustis in the post stadium
on the afternoon of July I I, and was the first time the 34th Infantry, CKITC,
appeared as an entire regiment, but such was the mental alertness of these
young citizens that although it had been only four days after their induction
into military life they marched in perfect company formation out on the
field to the stirring music of the "Stars and Stripes Forever," played by
the massed bands, and took their proper places in front of the speakers'
stand, in close formation, flanked by the regiments of the Regular Army at
Around the stadium were flying flags of many nations, the speakers'
row was gay with bunting. Here sat the military and naval officials from
Fort Eustis and the neighboring government stations, together with prom-
inent citizens of the Lower Virginia Peninsula.

Coast Artillery and the 34th Infantry, Colonel joseph P. Tracy, 30th Coast
Artillery Brigade, commanding Fort Eustis, welcomed the CNITC men to
camp and declared that he believed the camp at Eustis not excelled by any
in the country. Colonel Tracy stressed the fact that CXITC trains men for
citizenship, and that the military feature, as important as it is, is by no
CMTC TAKES THE OATH I
means the only one to be remembered. Colonel Tracy then introduced the
Honorable Schuyler Otis Bland, hlember of Congress from the First Yirginia
District, who made the principal address of the day. Nlr. Bland has always
shown himself eager to assist National preparedness and the CKITC in
every possible way. Among other things, Representative Bland said, "It
is true that although some of us may roll our r's while others may elimin-
ate them altogether, some of us may ask for pudding, while others may
be content with puddin', we all share the glorious heritage of our common
country, we seek for her industrial commercial and financial greatnessg but
above all that, we seek for her that moral, intellectual and spiritual leader-
ship of the world. The men who come here learn at first hand American
ideals, American traditions and the true meaning of the American Con-
stitution, they become finer citizens, for they become informed citizens. "
At the conclusion of this forceful talk the Oath of Good Citizenship,
which made the candidates citizen soldiers for a month, was administered
by Colonel Thomas IV. Darrah, 34th Infantry, commanding the CKITC.
YVhen the men had pledged their allegiance, the massed bands played the
National Anthem, and at its conclusion, in perfect cadence, CXITC marched
back to its regimental area with happy stride and a sense of greater

THE 315'1'H INFANTRY
The 315th Infantry Regiment was organized as a unit of the 79th Division at Camp
Meade, Md. The Regiment sailed as a unit for France in June, I917,and after a period
of training in the rear areas entered the trenches in a quiet sector early in September.
On the night of September 25, it became apparent that a battle was imminent, and early
on the morning of the 26'EI'l the order to advance was given.
Mountfoucon, Nantillas, and several smaller villages were captured in the course
of the first five days, and, after a relief period of some six days, the Regiment once again
entered the lines and saw continuous action right up to Armistice Day.
The Regiment was reorganized in IQZO as part of the 79th Division of the Reserve.
It has full war strength officer personnel, and is under the command of Colonel Joseph
During July, 1927, the 315th Infantry was stationed at Fort Ifiustis, Va., for I5 days'

SMTTH BROTHERS A THE FIRST SQUAD
Fort Eustis-"O-D"-Fort Eustis
SERGEANT LIZER i
Among the sights and sounds familiar
to every CMTC student trained by the
of Company "HU CMTC. He was a
private-in Company "D", 32Otl1 Infantry,
Soth Division, for I4 months, I2 of which
34th Infantry at Camp Meade and Fort
Eustis is ISI Sergeant Samuel S. Lizer of
Hagerstown, Maryland. Sergeant Lizer,
during his fifteen years and four months
in the United States Army, has served
more than seven years with the 34th
Infantry in Companies "A" and HH".
His chubby figure is most eye-filling, but
he can not really be appreciated until he
is heard in action, counting cadence, dis-
tributing mail, Hbawling out', some ob-
streperous student or giving fatherly advice.
Can you tell which of these is which?
The Fort Eustis CMTC was this july
blessed with twins, not just one pair, but
four different sets.
In Company "C" were james W.
Richard W. Roberts, and Charles E.
Edward T. johnson. Company "D" had
William C. and Vernon j. Miller,
Edward WV. and Charles H. Neiman.
Harry A. Turley of Leesburg, Virginia,
is the m.ost outstanding figure in Company
HH". With his 6 feet, 4M inches he towers
above everything on parade. Everybody
knows him as Hjimson Weed" and as he
is already 20 years old he hopes he can
stop growing. It is just the opposite with
his buddy, "I-Ioptoad" Warren Hopkins,
of Winchester, Virginia, who says that
growing is the "fondest thing he is off' for
he is just under five feet. He is only I7
years old. There is a great gulf in rank be-
tween Turley the Blue and Hopkins the
Basic, but they are inseparable companions.
WORLD WAR VETERANS
The War with the Central Powers of
Europe was fought ten years ago, when m.ost
of the men of CMTC were just starting
to school, and rare indeed is it at this late
day to find any veterans of that conflict
attending a civilian training cam.p, but the
Fort Eustis CMTC of 1927 had five, all
Blue students, all candidates for a Reserve
commission, and one of them even a veteran
of the Mexican Border.
Milford H. Clark, the man on the left
in the photograph, is 24 years old, single,
and was in Company "B,'. He was a
Yeoman, ISt Class, U. S. Naval Reserve.
Next to him is Charles E. Reams, jr.,
he served overseas. He is 31 years old and
is single. .
Arthur G. Childers, of Company "E"
CMTC, is 3I years old, has been married
7 years and has a son for a future CMT
Camp. He was a private in Company
"K", 59th Infantry, 4th Division, spend-
ing a year in service, nine months of which
were overseas. He was gassed at St. Mihiel.
Charles B. Jennings was a corporal on
the Mexican Border and with the same grade
was twenty months overseas in the 66th
Field Artillery Brigade as observer and
liason non-commissioned ofiicer. He is
single and 30 years old.
Donald B. Gatling. the smiling individual
on the other end is single and 26 years of
age and is a student in Company "B"
CMTC. During the World War Gatling
was First Sergeant of the 153rd Field
Hospital, 9oth Division, and was overseas
northwest of Verdun for ten months.
'FIRST "O-D" SUBSCRIBER
The young man, so trimly garbed in a
new uniform in this picture, is Charles H.
Lynch, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles H.
Lynch, 318 Catherine St., Middleton, Pa.
He is exceedingly proud of the book he
holds, for he was the first subscriber to the
Fort Eustis CMTC Annual of 1927. He
also bought "O-D" last year.
Smith Brothers are commonly pictured
as a muchly bewhiskered pair. But take
a look at these youngsters-three of them
and not a single Whisker in the lot. This
is the first time that the Fort Eustis CMTC
has had three brothers in camp during the
same summer. They hail from Washington,
D. C., and all live at I332 21st Street,N.W.
THE FIRST SQUAD
The first eight men to be processed this
year, one might call the group the "First
Squad, Fort Eustis,CMTC", werefof vary-
ing heights and ages and came from many
different places. These men were: Henry

THIRTY DAYS AT HARD LABOR
That queer mixture of medical jargon and sizes of uniforms that so many of you men
heard for the first time on the morning of July 7th was the lingo of what the military
authorities call Hprocessingn. It is a newly-coined term and you will probably not be able
to find it in any dictionary, but its meaning is unmistakable to any man who has been
processed. Many months in advance of your coming the details had all been carefully
worked out, and officers and men assigned to their various tasks so that there could be
no possibility of anything going wrong.
Do not wonder if you found us somewhat sleepy-eyed, for we were up and ready for
you long before dawn and were cheerful, we hope, even with the memory of a three o'clock
breakfast haunting the early morning hours. You can well imagine that we sought lulls
between trains, when we, too, could sneak down near the tent of the Personnel Adjutant
and get some of the good buns and lemonade that the ladies of the Post so deftly handed
out. There was enough for you and for us too. That was a long day, and perhaps some of
you do not realize that nearly ISOO men were entered as students of the Fort Eustis CMTC
in less than twenty-four hours. A few stragglers drifted in during the next day or two,
until you numbered 1535 in all-the biggest camp we have ever had at Eustis.
A bigger and better CMTC! Surely it was that, and we are certain you believe, as
we do, that it was the best in the United States. You have done your part in making it so.
There was no thought of making you finished soldiers, but even the Basic knows how to
drill, to shoot and to rub elbows contentedly with the fellows from other sections, to relish,
in short, the real meaning of American democracy. We feel that you could play a man's
part in time of national emergency-that was part of our plan-but, better still, we know
that through the lessons taught you during our talks on citizenship you have acquired a
new viewpoint of the value of discipline in the mass of our citizenry and will return to your
communities to fight courageously the battles of the Hom.e Sector.
The increasing popularity of these camps speaks well for our efforts in behalf of the
youth of America. Tim.e was when few CMTC students returned a second summer. Then
the fortunate platoon commander who could seize upon a Blue candidate boasted of his
conquest to his envious colleagues. This year no platoon lacked its full quota of com-
petent Whites and Blues, and every squad had a Red candidate as its corporal. We were
glad to see you come, many of you ignorant of the very meaning of discipline, and we are
sincerely sorry that we shall have to wait until another summer to renew the friendships
formed during your training period.
But as we begin storing away, this fifth day of August, the supplies for your comfort
and your instruction, we are thankful for our share in sending you back to your homes
better and more, appreciative Americans for your stay at Fort Eustis. Thirty days at hard
labor? Perhaps you think so just now, but wasn't the game worth the candle? For mingled
with the recollection of sunburn and blisters, hikes and hospital pills, is the satisfaction
of a duty well performed and companionships everlasting.

The first distinguished guest of the I927 Fort Eustis CMTC was Major General
Douglas MacArthur, Commanding General Third Corps Area, who arrived on the after-
noon of July 7th, the day of the processing, and remained several hours. General Mac-
Arthur was with us again on the morning of August 3rd, when he was tendered the final
review of the CMTC Regiment. On this occasion he made an interesting talk to the candi-
dates and congratulated them and the officers on the fine appearance of the camp and its
The Honorable Otis Schuyler Bland, Representative in Congress of the First Virginia
District, made the speech of the day at the taking of the oath by CMTC on July Ilth.
This was the third cccasion on which he had visited Fort Eustis as the guest of its Com-
manding Oflicer for the purpose of welcoming the CMTC to Virginia.
The Virginia State Press Association held its annual meeting in Williamsburg during
the week of July Ioth, and upon invitation of the Post came to Fort Eustis on the after-
noon of July 15th, when they were shown the Post and environs. After having supper
in individual groups in the different companies, they were treated to a swimming exhibition
and several boxing matches, and returned-to Williamsburg late at night.
The Norfolk Chapter of the Reserve Oflicers Association made an oHClcial visit to the
Post on July 22. The party was headed by Colonel Junius A. Lynch, M. C., president of
the chapter. , '
Of the greatest interest of all to CMTC, however, was the visit of Major General
Charles P. Summerall, Chief of Staff of the Army of the United States, who came for an
official inspection of the camp on July 26th. He was accompanied by Brigadier General
Robert E. Callan,,in command at Fort Monroe, and inspected minutely every phase of
preparation for the welfare of CMTC, particularly the recreational features and the CMTC
Post Exchange and Infirmary. He commended the messes most highly. He made a thor-
ough inspection ofthe CMTC Regiment on the Parade and reviewed it afterward. During
the course of his inspection he addressed the boys and took occasion to say that he was
well pleased with the camp and thanked the boys for the cooperation that m.ade satis-
factory results possible, in this, the largest CMT Camp of the Third Corps Area.

ESCORT TO THE COLORS
This beautiful ceremony was made even m.ore beautiful
this summer, during the CMTC period, by the presence of
many comely young ladies from the communities hereabout
who, along with great crowds of visitors, are attracted to Eustis
in increasing numbers each year by the colorful evening cere-
monies of the CMTC Regiment.
i ln the ceremony the National Emblem is brought out to
the edge of the parade and there handed over to the escorting
company by one of the young ladies of the Post. ,lust as it
is received by the Color Bearer and presented to the escort-
ing company the band sounds "To the Colors".
The Flag then is borne toits place in the regimental line while
the command stands rigidly at attention. After the Colors
are received the evening gun is fired and the band breaks
forth into the strains of ':The Star Spangled Banner".
Miss Charlotte Criehlow, niece of Lieut. Colonel R. B. McBride, commanding the
Qqlst Coast Artillery Regiment, and Miss Mary-Ellen Mason, daughter of Major C. XV.
Mason, commanding the Second Battalion of the Fort Eustis CMTC, were the two young
ladies who presented The Colors to the CMTC.
THE SWIMMING POOL
The new swimming pool at Fort Eustis was opened July 15th, last year, after a re-
markably quick construction. The pouring of the walls of the tank was completed on
June 28th and the installation of the floor on June 3oth. It was necessary for the concrete
to set properly before it could be used. This year a new shower house and concrete Walks
have been constructed at the pooland thework of landscaping and grading is still going on.

shoes and hat fitted, on that memorable july 7th. The shoes were
not just what you wanted, for they were given to you somewhat
larger to allow for that growth that comes to all rookies' feet. Per-
haps, however, you were not satisfied when you got to your company
and felt that those shoes could never be broken in. Or perhaps you
thought jolmny jones had a better looking uniform than you had.
Through the Supply Ofliccr for the regiment you exchanged your
unsatisfactory equipment for things of which you could not complain.
Months before the arrival of CMTC great supplies of clothing and
pots and pans and dishes had been collected just for you. lt was the
Supply Ollicer who sent your clothes to the post laundry, and, as you
probably thought, always got somebody's else back. Be charitable
in your thoughts of him, for delivering laundry for 1500 men is no
'fi'aint him with iodine and mark him dutylll Thatis the pop-
ular conception ofthe Army mcdico's remedy for mental and physical
ills. But you know it is not the true one. The medicos were busy
every hour of the day giving first aid of some description: blistered
feet, too much heat, too many cold drinks, and all the ailments com-
mon to men when they first enter camp life. iodine played a minor
part in their scheme of things. No chance was taken with any
complaint that might by chance develop into something serious.

What could be better than the tinkle of silver in the pockets of those new OD breechcs? So the Finance
Ofliccr had the "Ghost walk" the day of processing and CMTC went on its way rejoicing to its separate companies
the day of its arrival. "Dough for Doughboysv is his motto and he was with you again on August 4th with a
plentiful supply of cash. Perhaps jolmny jones of your home town got more mileage than you did. But johnny
came direct to Eustis by the shortest usually travelled route and did not stop off in Baltimore to see Mary Ann.
Ice cream and side trips to the beaches cost money.
hiaybe you were in the first squad to go on K P. How you dreaded that job of peeling potatoes! You did
not know that Fort lfustis had a machine to do by electricity that Army necessity, another contraption to squeeze
lemons, and many different gadgets to make pies and ice cream. But you know it now, and how good that first
meal in camp tastedl The Mess Officer and his crew are well aware of the good old Army axiom, "A good mess,
a good companyg a poor mess, a poor company"-and they were kept constantly on the jump to see that nothing
went wrong, for the Colonel said there was no excuse for a bad meal, and if some youngster did not get his favorite
pie it must be the Mess Oflicer's fault. Every effort was made to supply a balanced ration, and with the marvelous
purchasing power of the Army the ration allowance may be made to go a long way. l?-ut, Buddy, even with the
aid of electricity it is .mmf job to supply eight kitchens with peeled potatoes and dish out icc cream every day.

CAPTAIN VITIIOMAS P. WA1.sn, Recreation Oliicer
The Recreation Ilall was equipped with all the essentials and
necessities that go to make a good clubroom-victrola, lounging
chairs, reading lamps, piano, stationery, stamps, and most important
of all-ice cold water. The l'lall had been newly painted and ren-
ovated just before the CMTC arrived, and presented a good appear-
ance. Three hostess aides were employed for the period of the camp,
and two of these ladies were constantly on duty at the Hall.
The CMTC dances, seven in number, were held in the Recreation
Hall. This year the policy of having some club or organization
sponsor each dance was started, and the idea met with great success.
Two sightseeing trips were taken to WVilliamsburg and the
College of William and Mary under the Recreation Oflicer.
The Navy YMCA of Norfolk, which met with such a good re-
ception last year, was back on the recreational program again this
year, and gave a very delightful entertainment on the night of july 19.
The War Department Theatre booked a specially selected
program of motion pictures for the CMTC.
The Post Swimming Pool, with the new concrete walks and the
new bath house, was also a center of recreational, as well as athletic
activity. The new slide, just purchased by the Recreation Depart-
ment, proved very popular with the men.
, The final great recreational activity came on the last night in
camp at the War Department Theatre, where CMTC Amateur Night,
H ITCW innovation at liustis, was held. Over 12.1.0 people turned out.

CHAPLAIN WILLIAM D. CLEARY
The CMTC candidates had scarcely begun the "processing" which temporarily
transformed them from the carefree high school boys of the Hold home town" to the
democratic soldiers of the United States, when there was given to each one of them a hand-
book of information, historical and instructive, telling ofcamp routine, activities, locations,
military organizations, schedules, and perhaps best of all, a diary in which to record his
daily round of duties and his own deductions and impressions. He also received a neat
folder describing the various usual and special religious services arranged for the training
period. Thus much work had been done in the weeks preceding the camp and the contents
of book and folder were crystallizations of the best activities of all preceding years.
The wholehcarted and generous approval given to the open-air services of the 1926
Camp made an easy task of the preparation for like services this year. The opportunity
was again afforded to prominent churchmen and the families of the candidates to participate.
The first service in the grove near Post Headquarters was held under Protestant auspices,
with the Rev. Dr. E. T. Wellford of Newport News as the preacher of the day. The second
was a Solemn High Military Mass, presided over by Bishop Brennan of Richmond, the
sermon being preached by the Rev. E. A. Brosnan of Norfolk. The Jewish services were
planned for the third outdoor religious gathering, and were led by Mr. S. Finestone of
Norfolk, under the auspices of the jewish Welfare Board, assisted by the choir of the Beth
El Synagogue of the same city. Colonel John T. Axton, Chief of Chaplains, was present
in camp on July 24th, attending the military mass in the park and addressing both the
Jewish and Protestant services.
During the "processing", valuable personal information was gathered and tabulated
relative to the candidate's religious affiliations, his stage of educational progress and his
participation in school papers and periodicals. The Reserve chaplains were then assigned
to various companies and sympathetic contacts were quickly made. In the recreation
centers, training areas and hospital much helpful work was done for the candidates in their
new surroundings, and the Reserve chaplains received valuable training.
The Post Chaplain was in charge of the activities, and he planned many praiseworthy
diversions. Letters were prepared by him and mailed to parents and guardians at the
earliest possible moment, telling of the arrival and comfortable settlement of their sons and
charges, and cordially inviting them to visit the camp as guests of the government. These
letters met with a most hearty response, especially for Parents' Day, July 29th, when all
trains were met and guests transported free of all charge to the Post, where they were
cordially welcomed by the Camp Authorities and Hostesses.
The careful service to the sick in hospital was capably and cheerfully rendered, and
many a lad was freed of homesickness and heartened to his work by the timely and kindly
counsel of the chaplains. Many new and changed opinions as to the value of training camps
resulted,-some who were prejudiced against the whole disciplinary idea became ardent
supporters of the work, because of the helpful hints given and habits stirred, which were
far enough removed from the matter of warfare. - In these days of sociological insistence
upon proper training of the youth and upon the true solution of the problem of what to
do with one's free or leisure time, in the light of results to date, one can not but concede
that the peculiar education of the CMTC goes far toward giving the candidate a wholesome
avocation with which to perfect the chosen vocation, and through foresight and prepared-
ness, toward educating the young men of today into life rather than for life.
Grateful acknowledgment is hereby made of the generous and enthusiastic assistance
of Corps Area and Post oHicers and troops and especially of the cordial cooperation of the
Post and Camp commanders in giving the strong religious emphasis and moral security
to all spiritual activities, whichiwe trust have had no small part in lifting the ClVITC out
of the experimental stage and in making the 1927 Camp at Eustis the deserved equal if
not the superior of all former camps.

LIEUTENANT RAY O. WVELCH, Athletic Offff
Athletics formed an important part of this year's CMTC. The program was success-
fully carried out, all forms of athletics were engaged in by the candidates. Competent
instruction in every sport was given in each company.
The game of speedball was again tried out, and it is believed that as soon as m.ore
people understand it it will be one of the most popular games. It is a combination of
basketball, football and soccer. The league in the sport opened with Company "A"
matched against Company "B", and Company "E" against Company MF". Owing to
many things required of the students, it was decided to have an elimination contest within
each battalion and then have a championship game between the two winning teams.
Company "C" won in the Ist- battalion by winning one, getting two forfeits. Company
"FU won in the 2nd battalion by defeating Company "H" I3 to 3, Company "EN 6 to O,
and Company "GM I3-O.
It looked as if "F" was a sure winner for the Camp championship on July 20, but
they were defeated by Company "C", 6 to I, in a very good game. A

Baseball immediately took the lead as the most popular sport. The second day of
Camp found every company out practicing. Some very good games were played within
the battalion leagues. Company "B" won in the ISI battalion, and Company "HB in

BY THE AUTHOR or "W1I.L1E CH EATHAM LooKs AT THE SENATEU
The intense heat made the idea of being stripped bare
naked as soon as we arrived at camp seem very delightful,
even though we would not see our civilian clothes again for ,.
a month. After being thoroughly examined physically, I was
sent into the CMTC haberdashery, where the clerks made the
selections. Some fellows who have two feet, literally, received
six-inch socks. The first pants I received wouldn't allow me -J,
to bend, but the manager let me change them, even tho I didnit -
have a purchase ticket. With a bag hlled with clothing we
were sent to our respective barracks. Our suitcases, having
been taken to our respective company supply rooms by Regular
Army men Cnice to have porters when only a private in the
CMTCJ, were waiting for us when we arrived, but only to
be checked for the month. Being one of several hard-to-fit
boys, I was so late getting to my company that I missed a sup-
ply of necessary equipment. This caused me to go hungry at
chow, for I had no mess-kit. At8:3o my appetite conquered
all fear of a chance of getting in the hoosegow for being insuf-
ficiently clothed. Iwent out in the rain with neither rain-
coat nor leggins fwhich made my legs barel, in search of food. W'U'm C"EM"'AM
I seemed to be the joke of the Post to the Regular Army men HIMSELF
who saw me. I hate to be laughed at, but I do like to know things, and somebody told me
" CMTC" stood for Colonel lVIurphy's Ten Children. ,
Somebody said that one of the main purposes of CMTC is to teach boys the duties
of manhood. I think he might have said womanhood too, for we have to make our bunks,
sweep under them., take turns at sweeping out the squad-rooms, serve as k.itchen maids
when they catch us, and on top of that a great many of us washed our own clothing rather
than take any chances on having them return home looking like a Monday bargain sale.
Mending slits in these tight pants and sewing buttons on was another every-day job. I
want to get married some day. A
The call from your mother or an alarm-clock is bad enough, but to be nearly knocked
out of your bunk at 5:45 a. m. because the Hrst call of the bugle failed to register on your
Cearl drum is terrible. You feel as though you are going to be dragged out and shot at
sunrise. On the other hand, if one doesnlt fall in at the reveille formation on time, and
with every button on, and buttoned, he soon wishes he had been shot. Sometimes a fellow
in the rear rank. can get by without his leggins or tie-especially if the officer didn't sleep
well the night before.

The carelessthenics, as they should have been called the first few days from the manner
in which they were executed, were my first, and I enjoyed them. The instructor soon
taught us that unless we put something into it and kept still while standing at attention,
we would be made to stand at attention in front of every one else. He was a hard man.
Someone near me slapped his hands down against his breeches during the exercise. The
instructor made us raise our arms again and hold them there, though they were about to
drop off already. He left Eustis before the CMTC did, for we watched at the gate and he
didn't come out.
Drilling for four hours a morning is not half as bad as having to guess what a bunch
of commands mean. One of the first commands given the platoon I was in, was"Squads
Right". I knew I was not a squad, and didn't know what to do, so I kept straight ahead
until I was knocked right. Again, the officer bawled out, "Right Dress". I spoke up
boldly, "Why I put on everything the Lieutenant told me to, before leaving the squad-
room, so I thought I was already dressed right." I am not smart but I believe in my
rights. You don't try to understand what an officer says when he gives a command. All
you have to do is merely learn what should be done when he makes certain noises, and each
officer has invented his own particular style of grunts and yells. Now and then one of us
would forget which is right and which is left. This would make everyone else go in the
wrong direction. After drilling all morning with only a few minutes rest for three mornings
straight running, I began to think I was getting it down pretty slick, for now the officer
corrected me only about every fifteen minutes, instead of every three or four. Of course,
right then something had to spoil my good drilling--we were given rifles. I couldn't see
just how comical I did look, but I felt clumsier than ever, and there were plenty of near
resemblances to myself all about me. I might say here that some of us spent about two
hours trying to clean our rifies the night they were issued. When all the cosmoline had
been transferred from the rifie to several rags, and to my clothes besides, my rifle seemed
a pound lighter. One boy performed a miracle when putting his gun back together-
there was enough left over to start a second rifie. We were told not to drop our rifie under
any condition, and later, during a tryout on the manual of arms, we were told and retold
not to haul the rifle up and down, but to throw it and drop it snappily. So one day while
I was throwing and dropping it, trying to go through the manual snappily as I had been
reminded many times to do, I missed catching it and hit the man to the left of me on the
head as I came to the order from right shoulder arms. He seemed slightly dazed at first.
Uncle Sam feeds the CMTC boys a plenty to eat. I always got enough, though
sometimes not as much of some one thing as I would like to have had. The lemonade,
ice cream, pies and cereals with milk proved the most popular drink and foods of the entire
menu. Cereals and the milk for them went so fast every morning that hardly a morning
passed when one person out of the sixteen at a table, wouldn't miss out on cereal and milk.
One person near the head of the table ate a whole box of grape nuts every' day he could
get them. This same sweet

Bread and spuds kept nip and tuck on the menu. In
fact, I believe the spuds won, even though the Post
has a good bakery. One of our old tricks was to un-
screw the top of the salt shaker so that the contents
of the shaker would descend into the .other fellow's
plate when he used it. Often the cook tried to deceive
us on stewed corn or lima beans. The dishes would
be filled with the buttered water that the cornior the
beans had been cooked in, but a 11Ct was required to
fish up the few beans at the bottom. Tablesmanners
are fine in their place, but otherwise very handicapping.
Table manners at the CIVITC are a sure means of
The whistle for seats was sometimes kept silent
a long time. When it was blown, the thing that looked
best near you was grabbed for, and then you took
your seat. The grabbing contest lasted throughout
the entire meal, every man for himself. Now and then
two boys made a desperate effort for the same thing,
and the Olive Drab got a coating. I have long arms-longer than most. We were made
to sit at attention throughout the long announcements that were so often made during
chow. As a rule, we were called to attention just as'we had started eating. Lieutenant
Frigidaire of my company seemed to delight in talking as slowly and as long as possible to
make sure everything would be cold before he let us start eating again. I believe the
company that puts out these things guarantees a temperature of forty or less.
The man who invented the Army whistles would never have done so had he known
that his son might perhaps some day be at a CIVITC. lflveryone in every company from the
Blues up brought Fido's whistle and dog chain with him from home, and these whistles were
blown several times for everything that happened. The wind used during the month in
blowing whistles, if put altogether, would make a city council jealous. Perpetual motion
exists also at a CMTC. Cigarette butts, matches, candy and soap wrappers, and used
rifle patches are thrown down about the steps of each squad-room and in the company
streets as fast as the squad assigned to police the company area for that day can pick them
up. I donit smoke, myself.
The shirt-tail parade in bare feet is often seen in the company streets after tattoo,
which is lights out. just after I arrived home one Sunday night the bunk of a man who
came in at the same time I did dropped to the fioor with a thud. Someone had cocked
llls Bm' ON Simnxuv
his bunk while he was out. Immediately the lieutenant and the charge of quarters came'
in and ordered everyone out. With few exceptions all were either sound asleep or pretending
to be, but all were ordered out just as they were dressed-underwear, pajamas or whatnots.
I was caught with my underwear on and my shoes still on my feet. But the lieutenant
saw the shoes and said, "Don't goldbrick with those dogs on!" The ofiieers here are all
college men. It was my luck to guide the parade and, believe me, I trod slowly oh the
softest ground. THE INNOCENT AND Tl-IE GUILTY SUFFER ALIKE.
One Sunday night, Fats and a couple of others put a bag full of live sand-fiddlers around
in a good many bunks. I was sitting on mine at the time so was not bit. A little four-foot
Irishman in the squad-room above me was attacked by a swarm of flddlers when he slid
under the covers. He had to be treated at the Infirmary before he could sleep. Sand-
fiddlers must eat grape nuts, for both of them were in our beds most every night during
tlze last week. I like shredded wheat best, but one night I dreamed I was hungry and atc
up half my mattress. Thereafter the captain made me eat oatmeal. They found the boy
that had the pet sandfiddlers and he was confined to the company area. He asked the
captain if he might have a pass totleave the Corps Area, which covers three states and
Washington, D. C. The captain said, UNO". . -

The Colonel and the Major ate breakfast with us one morning-I wonder what offense
y were punishing themselves for. And after breakfast, they submitted to the individual
request of every kodak owner in the company that he be allowed to shoot them. The offense
must have been only M serious, for they were shot after sunrise.
The after effects of rifle practice were varied. The jiggers from the long grass and weeds
stuck to you closer and longer than the fellow who wanted to borrow a dollar. Bruised lips,
skinned noses and cheeks, and blue shoulders on those who thought they were too tough to
use towel pads, were three kinds of range souvenirs.
The few dollars that were spent in buying blue and red ribbons that went to the best
company in the regiment and battalions respectively every time the ClVITC's passed in
review on the parade ground were surely well placed. Our company got most of them.
A big Websteris dictionary is badly needed at the CMTC Recreation Hall. From
my own experience I know there are many misspelled letters written to mother, sweetheart
and girls in Williamsburg most every night. It's hell to have to write "love" as "luve"
for want of a measly book, and the Hostesses are not interested in affection. Few sheiks
were found around camp except on dance nights, and then the number was amazingly small,
due either to the misfit clothing or army haircuts. One boy in mysquad room spent about
ten minutes five times a day combing his hair, and I ean't see why he did it, for he is not
the kind women like. Thatfs straight stuff too, for he used my mirror every time. This
same boy went hungry several meals just because his hair caused him to be from five to
ten minutes late going to the table. CIVITC dances are very dangerous, when you keep
in mind the fact that one fellow broke his big toe while struggling at the first dance. In
the afternoons before the semi-weekly dances a lot of time was spent on appearances, and
in desperate efforts to secure free dance tickets, which were always at a high premium
except the night of the Dempsey-Sharkey fight. The radio made a competition that night.
I have known dance tickets to sell for as much as two bits. An interesting feature grew
out of the Dempsey-Sharkey fight. The sheik who combed his hair by my mirror had to
roll a potato from one end of our company street to the other, with his nose, all because he
picked the wrong winner.
The hike to Yorktown and the possibility of a sham battle was a major topic for
conversation throughout the entire camp. Some dreaded it and others were looking forward
to it. We had even practiced pitching and striking our pup tents. It seemed rather
disastrous to me that the terrific rain storm the afternoon before we were to start prevented
,our marching to the front, after being so well trained. But such is war, and only the
Chinese Armv carries umbrellas.
Parentsliday proved a cure for home sickness, besides' giving all boys whose parents
visited them a chalice to eat at the guest
table and have more, and possibly choieer,
helpings of eats. Many parents, including
my mother, stayed longer than the one day.
During the time my mother stayed, she
received almost as'much benefit from the
training as I did, and I got more to eat.
Machinery has certainly helped out the K, P's.
I expected to have to peel potatoes nearly
half the day, but they came already peeled.
They grow that way around Lee Hall. If the
army would only make or buy a few dish-
washing machines, and put two mattresses on

It was our good fortune to have with us '

the students to receive awards were formed
in three ranks in front of the center of the
regiment on line of Battalion Commanders,
and marched forward to the designated place
facing the General who prlolcecidlejliiqgisgsted

scholastic, military and athletic tokens of
P Afterythe awards to the men in the three
ranks, General MacArthur carried the medals
intended for the honor students of the camp,
the color bearers and guard, and pinned them
upon their breasts as they stood in the regi- V
mental line. Blue Candidate Charles B.
Jennings of Company "D", Senior Vice Com-
mander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in
the District 'of Columbia and representative
of this organization at Eustis, made a few appropriate remarks on the presentation of the
Veterans' Medal to George S. Cawthorne, Company "Au, Mt. Rainier, Md., the Best
Basic. Cawthorne also received the Lieutenant General MacArthur Trophy, and a medal
as the best Basic in his company. The other members of the color bearers and guard were:
George E. Robey, Best White, CRifleD, Co. "A", Washington, D. C.g George H. Clark,
Best White, fMachine Sugb, Co. "H", Potomae,Va.g Endicott Longacre, Best Blue,
Co. "B" Washington, . .
At the conclusion of the review General MacArthur had the students gather around
him and delivered a most unusual commencement address, voicing the real convictions of a
soldier expressed in soldierly terms to his fellow soldiers. Among other things, General
MacArthur said, "The spirit of the CMTC is such that at a call to arms we can count upon
you to leave the ring of the cash register to answer the summons of the bugle. You remind
me of the Minute Men of Lexington, farmers and traders one day,-the next, soldiers.
Your example is inspiring and your influence in your communities is a valuable asset to
your government, for you become a nucleus of patriotic endeavor in your own circles,
among your own folk. Without you the National Defense Act would not be so potentf'
